On March 15th the American Cancer Society held a survivor dinner at the Wyndham Garden Pierpont Inn. On this night they honored cancer survivors and caregivers for the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life. The survivor dinner was a fun night that consisted of music, speakers, raffles, and a tasty meal.
